Six Sydenham riders were down to start the 47th edition of this event. For some it would be their first event of the year, with others already having one or two events under their belt. On the day both Ed Rieu and Neil Stanley did not start. The remaining four were greeted by freezing conditions with a brisk breeze. They also had to contend with an alteration to the course due to road works involving some rolling technical lanes. The times recorded were as follows; Richard Hallett 1.18.23 (28th), Pete Mahoney 1.19.22 (33rd), Dave Twin 1.20.02 (34th) and Robert Royston 1.20.04 (35th). The winning time was 1.06.01 by Wouter Sybrandy of Sigma Sport.
